Hey..i'm new here, so I thought i'd introduce myself. I'm 15, white, ive had my dreads for about 8 months (i'll include some pics). I love dreads, I cant think of myself looking decent and liking how I look without my dreads. Once I found out there was a dread community i knew i had to join. Any of you are welcome to IM me thru AIM, or look at my journal, whatever. Nice to meet you all.

UPDATE

So I got my dreads on last Saturday, but we didn't have too much time so they only finished the bottom part of it. I have about 22 now, and only about 6 or 7 left (approx.) to do.

They are fantabulous.
And I'm finally happy with my hair.
Pictures may be put up soon.

For washing for the first time, I don't have special dread wax [yet], I do have anti-residue shampoo with no conditioner, but I also have plain soap. Suggestions? Choices?

this probably sounds insanely stupid but, since i got dreads i never play in the rain anymore. playing in the rain is like the most enjoyable thing for me, but i'm afraid of mold (ick). anyway this summer i'm moving to london where apparently it rains quite often. any other lovers of rain here? what do you do when you want to soak in the rain?

Hello! New, and stuff. Um.. No pictures yet, because I'm lazy and crap. But soon, I promise! My dreads will be, er, *counts on fingers* OOH! 18 months old in a week or so. Bless the little shits. Love. xx
